The music industry in terms of business cannot be understood unless its agreements are understood. Contracts are the source of information that best illustrates what’s all this is about. Derivative of copyright and related rights must be taken into account in all decision-making and operational planning. This starting point is also the basis of every agreement.

‘The Essence of the Music Business – Contracts’ addresses understandably the problematic issues and the business that is formed around it. The main focus is on where it most intensively touches its authors – artists and their management. It is the place where all the necessary licenses are ultimately granted.

This book deals with what artists usually must arrange in order to achieve their goals. The book deals not only with the most important types of contracts in the industry, but it also takes note their effects on another. Although the book is specially intended for managers and artists, it is also a useful guide to other professionals in the field.

The author of the book has over 20 years of experience in the international music business as a manager and legal advisor. This book is his first book dedicated to international distribution.
